Abstract Corneal neurotization is a surgical procedure for sensory reinnervation in neurotrophic keratopathy (1-9). Common causes of neurotrophic keratopathy include herpetic infections, chemical or thermal burns, diabetes, cranial nerve 5 injury, and chronic ocular surface disease or con-genital causes (10). The severity of neurotrophic keratopathy is graded in 3 different stages, known as the Mackie classification. The goal of corneal neurotization is promote regrowth of corneal nerves to an insensate cornea (11).
